Getting Rid of our Junk Week 11-13 of 54

For week 11, I pulled a 6 and for week 12, I pulled an 8 and for week 13, I pulled a 2. When I was cleaning out the basement of all the cardboard I posted about last update I saw 6 buckets I had never used from the bakery so I put a postContinue reading “Getting Rid of our Junk Week 11-13 of 54”

Getting Rid of our Junk Week 9 and 10 of 54

For week 9 I pulled a 7 and for week 10 I pulled a 5. I swear it is harder to work with the smaller cards than it is the larger cards lol. I combined weeks 9 and 10 to get rid of 12 items. My basement needed it the most. I sell vintage andContinue reading “Getting Rid of our Junk Week 9 and 10 of 54”

Getting Rid of our Junk Week 8 of 54

For week 8, I pulled a King which means 75 items to purge or a large project. There has been a very large project that I have been putting off since last year so I kicked myself in the behind this week and started working on it. I went to the hardware store and purchaseContinue reading “Getting Rid of our Junk Week 8 of 54”

Getting Rid of our Junk Week 7 of 54

For week 7, I pulled a Jack which meant 25 items to purge. This week I decided to use the Jack for a project instead of just getting rid of 25 items. I have been procrastinating on cleaning my kitchen desk. It is a dumping ground for junk and mail and books and papers. HereContinue reading “Getting Rid of our Junk Week 7 of 54”

Getting Rid of our Junk Week 5 and 6 of 54

For week 5, I pulled a Queen which means 50 items and because I was so late with week 5 I pulled week 6 along with it and got a 2. Each week I try to pick an area to declutter and my husband and son brought up this week’s area. My son was commentingContinue reading “Getting Rid of our Junk Week 5 and 6 of 54”

Getting Rid of our Junk Week 4 of 54

For week 4, I pulled a Joker. This is the highest card to pull and thankfully there are only 2 of them. Oh did I have fun with this card. Last Saturday with it being so gloomy I turned my phone off, turned on Blue Bloods in the bedroom and spent 3 hours going throughContinue reading “Getting Rid of our Junk Week 4 of 54”

Getting Rid of our Junk Week 3 of 54

I had an interesting response from a reader after last week’s post. The reader loved the idea of clearing the clutter in her own home but didn’t feel that they really had that much stuff and she would struggle with the high cards such as the Kings which would be 100 items. I want toContinue reading “Getting Rid of our Junk Week 3 of 54”

Getting Rid of our Junk Week 2 of 54

It’s already week 2 and I pulled a 4 for this week. A small card means large items need to be hauled out. We have a usable attic in this house and in the past it was my grandfather’s train room. From one side to the other were train tracks and the walls were decoratedContinue reading “Getting Rid of our Junk Week 2 of 54”

New Blog Series – Getting Rid of our Junk Week 1 of 54

Welcome to my newest blog series! This series has been something I have thought about writing for a while. Last week when the Hubs was gone on vacation I looked at all of our stuff and I had a mini break down. For some people, having lots of stuff is a comfort to them butContinue reading “New Blog Series – Getting Rid of our Junk Week 1 of 54”

One Hundred Dollars a Month

I am your typical housewife living in high maintenance suburbia. I have a handsome husband, 2 kids and a flock of pet chickens. I try and feed my family with $100 a month. With the help of coupons, gardening and bartering I am able to squeeze the most out of our grocery budget and still manage to have a little fun along the way.
